The Chautauqua County Health Department is now reporting 28 active cases of COVID-19 in the county. Contact tracing is currently being performed, and those who are identified as being close contacts will be notified.
In addition, the health department can test those who are showing at least one symptom and/or is a close contact with a positive case. Results for tests are usually received in 3-5 days, but those tested would need to quarantine until test results are received.
To slow the spread of the virus, the health department is again asking those in the community to wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, avoid large groupings, and also take precautions concerning family holiday gatherings. Contact the department at 620-725-5850 if you have any questions or concerns.
